Have you ever had one of those days without enough time, and so much to do?
I’m having one of those days and I shouldn’t be. The problem was two of our cats – Bob and Sofia – decided to harass me until 2:30 am before I got any sleep. And then I had to be back up at 5:30am to let all the cats and the dog out, and then I slept until eleven and was in my jammies in front of the laptop (new Raising Hope and Modern Family, yay!) until 12:30-ish.
Days off are awesome, but I’ve totally wasted mine, I think.
Why the crazy? My mother is in Sydney with my sister, and I’m holding down the fort alone. I had visions of delicious pasta bake for tea last night, and a day of drawing, finishing off this darn layout (and moving the whole site to the main directory) and playing Wii. That plan is dead in the water. There is no way I’ll have time for any of that with the cleaning I have to do, plus finish some art for a local protest. I might whip up some pasta for lunch and save some to put my pasta bake together tomorrow or something.
I’m also transfixed by the iOS5 update for my iPhone – it really is quite awesome. I’ll do a write up of it in the next few days. There are two things that I’m concerned about, though – iCloud does not work with XP, and the new iTunes won’t acknowledge my mother’s iPad using Windows XP. This is a kick in the crotch, since the update the iPad and make it computer-free, I’ll have to use a Mac – my Mac, which isn’t really fair since it’s Mum’s iPad. The second thing that bugs me is that I like the Lion OS on my Mac to use iCloud and not only are most of the features of Lion wasted on someone using a Mac Mini with a BenQ monitor, I really don’t want to spend the money – mostly because I really have no reason to. My Mac is awesome and I like it just the way it is. Argh, damnit Apple. (Let’s not even talk about the four freaking hours it took to load onto my phone. That was frustration-station.)
And right now I have no excuse not to get stuck into some cleaning XD
